   went to the G.I. yesterday, he wants me to cut down to 2 pills of entocort a day. Anyone have any problems when reducing entocort? My blood test finally came back normal after two years of being anemic which is great, I just wish he would let me enjoy the way I feel right now instead of cutting back. I guess you have to some time.....

No problems for me. I'm set to cut back to one pill a week on Friday.

(I have had bleeding problems the last 3 weeks but I don't think it's related to the entocort)
Dx: Crohn’s Ileitis as of 22/02/08
Rx: Salofalk 4g/day (26/02/08)
6mg Budesonide (for the next 6 weeks as of 04/04/08)

Discontinued meds:
Asacol 2.4g
Pentasa 4g

Some time back someone on here was weaning of the Entocorte and getting to the 3 mg was a real problem for that person. Just take it slow & easy. Susie
